Target group

Project managers, Young people, Youth leaders, Youth workers, young job-seekers, workers/coaches of youth employment and entrepreneurship projects

 

If you are working in a project aiming to increase young people's employment chances on the job market, then Bridges to Work is for you. No matter if you are a youth worker, social worker, coach, career counsellor, or some other function.

Important though is that you come with a young person (under 26 years old) from your project.

- Come and present your employment project
- Get inspired by other job projects in Europe
- Network with people from the job sector
- Find ideas and partners for future projects
- Influence European approaches to work & entrepreneurship

Bring a young job-seeker

A young person (under 26) from your project is invited to attend the parallel youth inclusion seminar on employment. Give them the chance to:

- Exchange experiences with other job-seekers
- Develop strategies to work on their employability or entrepreneurship
- Give their opinion to improve employment & entrepreneurship projects
- Practice their English (basic English required)
- Have fun and get an international boost to get a job

Note: The programme for young job-seekers & their coaches will start early on 17 October afternoon to allow more time for group building.

Coaches/workers in youth employment or entrepreneurship projects are invited to apply online via http://www.salto-youth.net/BridgesEmploymentProject/ for both yourself and one young job-seeker!
